October 30 2013 Quilting Newsletter

Hello everyone, at last a chance to sit down and write to you this week. I have a sneaky suspicion that my newsletter failed to reach you last week. We had a minor problem with the mail for Bellaonline, and even though the newsletter said it was sent Ė Iíve heard from some of my readers that it didnít get through. So if you didnít get a newsletter from last week you can access it from the following link. Go to the right side of the screen and click on ďpast issuesĒ. Youíll see the newsletter for 23rd October 2013. http://www.bellaonline.com/newsletter/Quilting

Itís been a busy week for me so far with our monthly Sunshine Linus gathering up on the Sunshine Coast. A huge day as always and we managed to distribute such a lot of goodies to those in need. Pop over to the blog to see what we got up to. http://sunshinelinusgroup.blogspot.com.au/

Iíve been going like the clappers binding toweling clothing protectors (bibs) for dementia patients in nursing homes. My sewing room has a soft white layer of toweling fluff as far as the eye can see! My darling complained that itís starting to spread up the stairs! These clothing protectors are made out of the towels the nursing homes canít use because theyíve been over washed, but they make perfect bibs. We use very bright fabrics for the binding and they look pretty spiffy, even if I say so myself. We are told that some dementia patients can use up to six clothing protectors each day, so weíll always have a need for them.

Last week I posted a book review on a book written by Debbie Mumm. Itís a pretty book with lots of simple little projects to make over a weekend. Hereís the review: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art181738.asp

Iíve got some great little interesting bits for you to browse through this week; I hope you find something that interests you.
